  • Praise the Lord!

    For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.
    2 Corinthians 4:18

    For we walk by faith, not by sight.
    2 Corinthians 5:7





    By Faith in Christ I Walk With God

    By faith in Christ I walk with God,
    With Heav’n, my journey’s end, in view;
    Supported by His staff and rod,
    My road is safe and pleasant too.
    I travel through a desert wide
    Where many round me blindly stray;
    But He vouchsafes to be my Guide,
    And will not let me miss my way.

    Though snares and dangers throng my path,
    And earth and hell my course withstand;
    I triumph over all by faith,
    Guarded by His almighty hand.
    The wilderness affords no food,
    But God for my support prepares;
    Provides me every needful good,
    And frees my soul from wants and cares.

    With Him sweet converse I maintain,
    Great as He is I dare be free;
    I tell Him all my grief and pain,
    And He reveals His love to me.
    Some cordial from His Word He brings,
    Whene’er my feeble spirit faints;
    Be this my choice, O Lord, to walk
    With Thee, my Guide, my Guard, my Friend.




    Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

    Blessings, peace, grace and to all here at TOL!

    .....O LORD my God, in You I put my trust. Psalm 7:1
    .....To You, O LORD, I lift up my soul.
    Psalm 25:1

    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~ Leo Buscaglia

    The best portion of a person’s life -- are the little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and love. ~ William Wordsworth

    • Praise the Lord!

      To stand every morning to thank and praise the LORD, and likewise at evening.
      1 Chronicles 23:30





      On Thee Each Morning, O My God

      On Thee each morning, O my God, my waking thoughts attend;
      In whom are founded all my hopes, in whom my desires end.
      My soul, in pleading wonder lost, Thy boundless love surveys,
      And fired with grateful zeal prepares Her sacrifice of praise.

      When evening slumbers press my eyes, with Thy protection blest,
      In peace and safety I commit my life in Thee to rest.
      My spirit in Thy hands secure fears no approaching ill;
      For whether waking or asleep Thou, Lord, art with me still.

      Then will I daily to the world Thy wondrous acts proclaim;
      Whilst all with me shall praises sing and bless Thy sacred name.
      At morn, at noon, at night I’ll still the growing work pursue;
      And Thee alone wilt praise, to whom eternal praise is due.

      • Praise the Lord!

        Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.
        Galatians 6:2





        Bear You One Another’s Burdens

        Bear you one another’s burdens, as you struggle on thro’ life;
        Turn not on your erring brother, add not to his care and strife;
        Let your heart beat kindly for him, for this world with sin is rife.
        If his burden be so heavy that he stoops beneath the care,
        Help him bear it, of your vigor, give him as you well can spare.

        Wipe away the tears of sorrow falling from his weary eyes;
        Point him to a joy eternal, in the land beyond the skies,
        Ere his pining heart in anguish, bitter, hopeless anguish, dies.
        Sympathy and love can brighten burdens that are hard to bear;
        Angels bright will help you nobly, angels from the land so fair.

        Wrap not close your mantle ’round you Mantle dark, of selfish pride;
        In your bosom, gentle impulse do not strive to crush or hide;
        There is much of good and evil in this world so broad and wide.
        Much for willing hearts of labor, much of good there is to do;
        Then arouse! leave not the burden bearing heavy on the few.




        Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

          Cast your burden on the LORD, and He shall sustain you.
          Psalm 55:22





          He Knows

          Oh, aching heart, with sorrow torn,
          Thy Lord is near and knows;
          He knows it all the feet way worn,
          The weary cares and woes,
          The load of grief in anguish borne,
          The Lord is near, He knows.

          Oh, fainting soul, with doubts oppressed,
          Thy Lord is near and knows;
          He knows it all how thou art pressed
          On every side with foes;
          He waits to be thy cherished guest;
          The Lord is near, He knows.

          Oh, weary head, that fain would rest,
          Thy Lord is near and knows;
          He knows it all, and on His breast
          Thou mayest now repose;
          Drop every care at His behest,
          The Lord is near, He knows.

          Oh, lonely one, live thou thy best,
          Thy Lord is near and knows;
          He knows it all, sees every test,
          Yes, every tear that flows;
          Rejoice, faint heart, His way is best,
          Thy Lord is near, He knows.

            Praise the Lord!
            Sing to the Lord a new song,
            And His praise in the assembly of saints.
            Let them praise His name with the dance;
            Let them sing praises to Him with the timbrel and harp.

            Psalm 149:1 ~ Psalm 149:3





            Sunday Morning Praise


            Praise His Name Forever

            Glory, honor, majesty and power
            Be to Him now risen from the dead,
            Who from death hath taken every terror,
            And hath made the grave a victor’s bed.

            Songs of joy we sing in exultation,
            Of our king, Redeemer, Lord of all!
            For He lives, o’er sin and death victorious;
            Earth and Heav’n His mighty deeds extol.

            Angels praise Him, in the highest glory,
            Cherubim and seraphim adore;
            While our human hearts awake the chorus,
            Jesus lives! He lives forevermore!

            Praise His name forever,
            Lift up the voice in honor of our risen king!
            Mighty to deliver,
            With angels we His praise will sing.

            • Praise the Lord!

              I was blind, now I see.
              John 9:25





              Praise God For What He’s Done For Me!

              Praise God for what He’s done for me!
              Once I was blind, but now I see;
              I on the brink of ruin fell,
              Glory to God! I’m out of hell.

              The Lord has pardoned all my sin,
              And now to praise Him I’ll begin;
              I never praised the Lord before,
              But now I’ll praise Him more and more.

              I spurned His grace, I broke His laws,
              But Jesus undertook my cause;
              Bad as I was, He cleansed my soul,
              Healed my disease, and made me whole.

              Praise God for what He’s done for us!
              He’s turned our hearts to praise Him thus,
              And now He cries, “Go on, go on!
              I’ll crown you when your work is done.”

              And above the rest this note shall swell,
              This note shall swell, This note shall swell,
              And above the rest this note shall swell,
              My Jesus has done all things well.

                Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying:
                “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?”
                Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”

                Isaiah 6:8





                To Be Used of God

                I’ve a yearning in my heart that cannot be denied,
                It’s a longing that has never been satisfied;
                I want this world to know, the one who loves them so,
                Like a flame its burning deep down inside.

                When I think about the shortness of all these earthly years,
                I remember all the wasted days all the wasted tears;
                I long to preach the word to those who have never heard,
                Of the One who can dispel all they feel.

                To be used of God to sing, to speak, to pray,
                To be used of God to show someone the way,
                I long so much to feel the touch of His consuming fire,
                To be used of God is my desire.

                  “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few.”
                  Matthew 9:37





                  Ho! Reapers of Life’s Harvest

                  Reapers of life’s harvest,
                  Why stand with rusted blade,
                  Until the night draws round thee,
                  And day begins to fade?
                  Why stand ye idle, waiting
                  For reapers more to come?
                  The golden morn is passing,
                  Why sit ye idle, dumb?

                  Thrust in your sharpened sickle,
                  And gather in the grain,
                  The night is fast approaching,
                  And soon will come again;
                  The Master calls for reapers,
                  And shall He call in vain?
                  Shall sheaves lie there ungathered,
                  And waste upon the plain?

                  Mount up the heights of wisdom,
                  And crush each error low;
                  Keep back no words of knowledge
                  That human hearts should know.
                  Be faithful to thy mission,
                  In service of thy Lord,
                  And then a golden chaplet
                  Shall be thy just reward.

                  • Praise the Lord!
                    There came down a storm of wind on the lake; and they were filled with water, and were in jeopardy. And they came to Him, and awoke Him, saying, “Master, Master, we perish.” Then He arose, and rebuked the wind and the raging of the water: and they ceased, and there was a calm. And He said unto them, “Where is your faith?” Luke 8:23-25




                    When the Storms of Life Surround Me

                    When the storms of life surround me,
                    And the world seems dark and cold,
                    When the rain beats down upon me,
                    And the lightning stabs my soul,
                    I cry out to my Savior,
                    “Lord, help me, lest I die!
                    Do You care not that the billows
                    Push my boat toward the shoal?”

                    When the raging winds and tempest,
                    And the noxious clouds of sin,
                    Whirl around me like an army,
                    And my faith is wearing thin,
                    In a whispering distant thunder,
                    Comes a voice like morning calm:
                    “Fear not, I am with you ever,
                    Till the world shall see its end.”

                    “I command the winds of heaven,
                    And the lightning does My will,
                    I who walked upon the waters,
                    And who bid the storm be still.
                    I seek not your destruction,
                    But to strengthen and make pure;
                    Keep your faith in Me, believing
                    I My promises fulfill.”

                    He is greater than the thunder,
                    He is mightier than the storm;
                    He extends His hand to lift me,
                    And protect my soul from harm.
                    He will see me safe to harbor,
                    To the haven of my rest,
                    Sheltered by the Rock of Ages,
                    Held in His almighty arm.

                    • Praise the Lord!

                      Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.
                      1 Peter 5:7




                      Leave It There

                      If the world from you withhold of its silver and its gold,
                      And you have to get along with meager fare,
                      Just remember, in His Word, how He feeds the little bird;
                      Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there.

                      Leave it there, yes, leave it there,
                      Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there.
                      If you trust and never doubt, He will surely bring you out.
                      Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there.






                      Cast your burden on the LORD, and He shall sustain you.
                      Psalm 55:22





                      Jesus Took My Burden

                      Oft-times the way is dreary and rugged seems the road,
                      Oft-times I’m weak and weary when bent beneath some load,
                      But when I cry in weakness how long O Lord how long,
                      Jesus takes the burden and leaves me with a song.

                      Yes, Jesus took my burden I could no longer bear,
                      Yes, Jesus took my burden in answer to my prayer;

                        If the world from you withhold of its silver and its gold,
                        And you have to get along with meager fare,
                        Just remember, in His Word, how He feeds the little bird;
                        Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there.

                        Leave it there, yes, leave it there,
                        Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there.
                        If you trust and never doubt, He will surely bring you out.
                        Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there.






                        Cast your burden on the LORD, and He shall sustain you.
                        Psalm 55:22





                        Jesus Took My Burden

                        Oft-times the way is dreary and rugged seems the road,
                        Oft-times I’m weak and weary when bent beneath some load,
                        But when I cry in weakness how long O Lord how long,
                        Jesus takes the burden and leaves me with a song.

                        Yes, Jesus took my burden I could no longer bear,
                        Yes, Jesus took my burden in answer to my prayer;
                        My anxious fears subsided my spirit was made strong,
                        For Jesus took my burden and left me with a song.

                        • Praise the Lord!

                          Be still, and know that I am God.

                          Psalm 46:10





                          Be Still, My Soul

                          Be still, my soul: the Lord is on thy side.
                          Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain.
                          Leave to thy God to order and provide;
                          In every change, He faithful will remain.
                          Be still, my soul: thy best, thy heavenly friend
                          Through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.

                          Be still, my soul: the hour is hastening on
                          When we shall be forever with the Lord.
                          When disappointment, grief and fear are gone,
                          Sorrow forgot, love’s purest joys restored.
                          Be still, my soul: when change and tears are past
                          All safe and blessed we shall meet at last.




                          I am with you always. Amen.

                          I'll Never Be Lonely Again

                          Lonely days and lonely nights filled with despair,
                          Caused me to long for someone to care;
                          Then I heard Christ say to me “This promise I've made
                          Lo! I am with you now and forever be not afraid.”

                          I'll never be lonely again, never again,
                          For I have opened my heart's door to Him.
                          So I'll brush away the tears and forget my foolish fears,
                          I'll never be lonely again, never again.

                          • Praise the Lord!

                            For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us.
                            2 Corinthians 1:19





                            Sunday Morning Praise


                            The Promises of God

                            God’s promises are like the birds of heaven
                            That fill the hours with music all day long,
                            Too oft unheard and oftener unheeded
                            Amid earth's voices of despair and wrong;
                            Each one a thought of God, a joy, a comfort,
                            If we but pause to listen to its song.

                            God’s promises are like the rain of heaven
                            That falls in blessing from the cloudy skies,
                            The mown grass and the tender herb rejoicing
                            When all the land is parched and verdure dies,
                            Replenishing the streams of His refreshing
                            Till from the dust of earth new harvests rise.

                            God’s promises are like the winds of heaven
                            And each in turn His trumpet message brings,
                            Sweeping afar, with breath of sea or forest
                            The poison mist that o'er the lowland clings;
                            Reviving forces that can south and strengthen,
                            Life in the touch and healing in their wings.

                            God’s promises are like the stars of heaven,
                            As numberless, as glorious, as bright;
                            Though endless ages witness to their splendor
                            Still do they glow with undiminished light,
                            Unseen and unremembered in the sunshine
                            And showing fairest in the darkest night.

                            God’s promises, forever fixed in heaven,
                            Though earth and heaven pass, shall still abide;
                            Yea and amen they are in Christ the Saviour
                            And all our needs in them are satisfied.

                            • Praise the Lord!
                              But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. Matthew 6:6




                              The Simple, Earnest Prayer

                              In the twilight of the morning, when the shadows steal away,
                              And we wake from balmy slumber to behold another day,
                              Let us go alone in secret, and unburden all our care
                              At the feet of our Redeemer, in the simple, earnest prayer.

                              In the noontide, calm and peaceful, when we pause awhile to rest,
                              Ere the sun in all its glory is declining towards the west;
                              In the midst of our temptation, when the cross is hard to bear,
                              If we cannot go in secret, God will hear the silent prayer.

                              When the toils of day are over, and we seek the hallowed place
                              Where by faith we meet our Savior, and adore Him for His grace;
                              How we feel our burden lighter, till we loose our weight of care,
                              While we lift our hearts together in the simple, earnest prayer.

                              In the morning, in the noontide, calm and peaceful,
                              When the toils of day are over, let Thy presence, blessed Savior,
                              Our protection ever be, give us strength for every trial,
                              Keep, oh, keep us close to Thee.




                              Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

                                He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
                                Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

                                Psalm 91:1





                                Now Let Us Come Before Him

                                Now let us come before Him, with song and prayer adore Him,
                                Who to our life hath given all needed strength from Heaven.
                                The stream of years is flowing, and we are onward going,
                                From old to new surviving and by His mercy thriving.

                                In woe we often languish and pass through times of anguish,
                                Of wars and trepidation alarming every nation.
                                As mothers watch are keeping o’er children who are sleeping,
                                Their fear and grief assuaging when angry storms are waging.

                                So God His own is shielding and help to them is yielding.
                                When need and woe distress them, His loving arms caress them.
                                O Thou who dost not slumber, remove what would encumber
                                Our work, which prospers never unless Thou bless it ever.




                                Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!
